Generation Y (people born after 1980) is the fastest growing segment in today's workforce. Trelleborg AB, a global company offering sealing solutions, conducted a substantial survey in 2013 asking 1,000 of their Gen Y employees about their needs, desires, and attitudes toward their workplace. Their responses, and follow-up face-to-face workshops conducted on four continents, gave valuable insight to the learning style of this generation, along with best practice in how to hire, retain, and develop this target group. This survey also revealed the diversity that exists between workplace generations. This offers useful awareness and solutions on how to address the different generations and thus optimize the workforce teams. In this interactive session you will be exposed to a real and timely business case with hands-on practical tools and techniques on how to optimize a company's generational diversity, with a focus on Gen Y.
The terms game-thinking, game-elements, and gamification have all entered into the vocabulary of trainers, e-learning developers, and instructional designers in the past few years. But what do these terms really mean and how can you apply them to create interactive learning events that change behavior and improve performance? How can you make your instruction more game-like without the cost and effort of creating a large-scale game? However, we have to think about a few things. How should games-thinking be integrated into the curriculum? Can attitudes and behavior change as a result of playing a game? What elements can learning designers borrow from game designers? What is the one secret game designers know that instructional designers never seem to grasp? The answer to these questions, and more, are not all that mysterious and can be found in the research and in uncommon best practices. Based on the bestselling book, The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, this interactive session includes many examples of using game-elements, game-thinking, and gamification to promote learning for performance improvement and highlights how organizations have added game thinking to their toolkit. And, yes, you will play a polling game in this session. Discover how research-based practices and game-thinking fit in with today's fast-paced need for quick, effective instruction.
Personalized leadership development holds great potential to drastically change the learning experience. It taps participant engagement, promotes ownership, and builds independence and confidence, while maximizing the leader's learning potential based on their individual needs, abilities, and preferences. Today, learners have access to diverse content and are making their personal preferences known regarding what is included in their training and the format in which they receive that content. They want to focus on learning that is unique to their current situation taking into account where they are in their careers and in their lives. At the same time, we need to ensure that they are achieving their behavior development goals. In this interactive session, you will learn the five practices for harnessing the power of personalized leadership development: personalized content, personalized insight, personalized practice, personalized performance support, and personalized learning environment. Additionally, you will network with peers to share personalization successes and tips for incorporating the new mixes of face-to-face, social, electronic, virtual, and on-demand learning.
Much of the training and development in the federal government is measured by the hour and takes place at discreet times throughout a career. In many cases federal employees must complete a specific number of hours of online or in-class training in order to qualify for promotion. The learning event model is based on a systematized approach to training intended to standardize qualifications and provide a road map for development. Unfortunately it often fails to support actual on-the-job performance. Contributing factors include lack of engagement with the content, training that is too far removed from the job, and content that is not relevant or 'one size fits all.' This model is starting to be subsumed by a more comprehensive learning ecosystem comprised of formal and informal content, online social interaction, and smarter knowledge management, which is facilitated through the use of enterprise social media and collaboration technologies. This combination of content and resources accessed through a social collaboration platform is the foundation of the continuous development environment. In this session we will examine continuous development environments that have been implemented within U.S. federal government agencies. We will explore specific use cases along with strategies to promote engagement and participation. Topics include enterprise social media, short format content, and performance support.
Businesses are abuzz about the multiple generations in the workplace. Training and development practitioners are struggling to bridge generational gaps and create more ways for different employees to share ideas and add value. In this interactive session, you will examine ways to capture and share tacit organizational knowledge while helping engage employees across generations and organizational silos using today's social and informal learning methods. Analyze specific examples to evaluate their relevance and develop approaches to apply them within your organization. Walk away with actionable strategies for immediate implementation and new perspectives on old problems.
Virtually all large organizations are global, and facing the challenges of creating learning interactions that are beneficial and comprehensible to diverse audiences all over the world. Some organizations take the 'pray' approach, by creating learning for one geography and praying other audiences will get something out of it. Other organizations burn through huge amounts of money creating custom learning for every different geography. Isn't there a better way? Can't effective global learning be created in a way that doesn't break the bank? This session focuses on a pragmatic and reasonable approach to global learning design that utilizes archetypes, focusing as much on the commonalities between learning styles as on the differences. The Global Archetype approach adapts well-established cultural preference models and combines them with insightful learning models. The result is three primary Global Learning Archetypes and six secondary archetypes that allow training to be designed once and used around the world. This session focuses on: how the Global Learning Archetypes were created, how the Archetypes can be translated into design specs that any learning team can use, and how organizations are using the Archetypes to deliver globally while controlling cost.
Training leaders requires the same skills and goals as training any adult learner. The speaker will explain how she transformed classroom learners to workforce leaders using facilitative training techniques. She will explain how the best method is facilitative (interactive, cooperative, and learner-driven) because it matches individual needs of the adult learner to organizational needs. Teaching should call on the learner's life experiences and personal as well as professional interests. Lessons should utilize hands-on practice of skills, supported and reviewed by the group (following group dynamics theory). The speaker will use her experience training police officers and other public sector employees to show how the lessons that private leadership trainers can take from public-sector leadership training. The ultimate goal is to clarify leaders' vision of organizational goals and how they can be achieved collaboratively with those they lead.
Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? This session will address the methodologies behind performance support (learning while doing), and how it is now, more than ever, all around us!
